Under 30: Courgette & Spaghetti with Goat's Cheese (v)

Welcome to another brand new series; this month we'll be creating various dishes that only take 30 minutes or less to prep and cook. As we are full time workers and gym enthusiasts, we are always looking for quick and easy (mostly healthy) recipes to make! We hope you enjoy this series and do let us know if you create any of them and what you thought!

Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 25 mins


- 1 tbsp olive oil 

- 2 red onions, thinly sliced

- 2 garlic cloves, crushed

- 150g (5oz) spaghetti (59p)

- 1/4 tsp dried crushed chillies

- 2 tsp caster sugar
- 2 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1 x 250g pack courgette spaghetti (£1)
- 50g (2oz) British soft goat’s cheese, crumbled or shaved (£1.50)

Total: £3.09


1. Heat the olive oil in a pan over a low heat. Add the red onions, then cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the onions catching on the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic after 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Add the spaghetti and cook for 9-10 minutes, until al dente. Drain, reserving 2-3 tbsp of the cooking water and return the pasta to the pan and cover.

3. Add the chillies, sugar and vinegar to the onions and bubble for 1 minute. Put the courgette spaghetti on top of the onions, cover and remove from the heat. Set aside for a few minutes to allow the courgette to steam until wilted.

4. Add the onions and courgette spaghetti mixture to the pasta, with the reserved cooking water, half of the goat’s cheese and seasoning. Toss together. Serve the pasta in bowls, scattered with the remaining goat’s cheese.
